Custom Fit Dress

What are you most proud of? The fit is fabulous and the dress is very comfortable. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I made several changes to the pattern after the muslin was complete. Make a muslin first! My muslin changes were similar to Betsy's from the Craftsy class.
